Terrible book, terrible deal from Amazon., December 17, 2013
Terrible book, terribly expensive and he loaner program is not worth t. I had the book for two weeks and amazon wanted it back. Not exactly a semester. And, if I don't return it quickly, they want $127, more than retail for the book.

Easy to read- many real life examples. Kindle version on my iPad is Awesome!, April 28, 2013
I actually read this book from beginning to end. It is flowing and easy to read with many real life examples throughout. I would highly recommend getting the Kindle version. I have an iPad, so I followed the directions on Amazon to download the Kindle app. And it worked perfectly. I could highlight, search, take my own searchable notes, and see most commonly highlighted areas from others. I wish every scholarly book came like this!

Do not waste your time on this book, April 8, 2013
I am a PhD student and was expecting this book to provide enough information about how to conduct a health outcome research with real examples and data. Authors Did not explain anything that would help me to conduct outcome research.
